Happy Birthday to me!

June 2, 2009

Yup, just had a birthday.  A milestone one.  We’ll leave it at that- it’s not so bad, it’s just a number, and the day before my birthday was the same as the day after- but we still won’t harp on the number…..  Anyway it’s not the dates on your tombstone but the dash in between, people!!!

I didn’t win anything at the Sew Mama Sew May Giveaway- 😦  – but that’s ok.

Back to my birthday!!  I got phone calls and e-mails galore- some surprising ones at that.  DD said she felt sorry for me, because I had to make my own birthday cake.  Well, thems the breaks when you are the baker in the house- and I didn’t want a partially-hydrogenated oil icing store cake- so I made it myself.  I wanted blueberry bars, but blueberries aren’t in season yet, so I opted for chocolate (MUCH more appropriate anyway!).

I made Martha’s jam cupcakes with chocolate frosting – quite a good and easy recipe.  I acutally followed the directions as written!  Except lowering the salt to 1/2 t. as suggested by a comment, and I only had 1 stick of unsalted butter, so I used salted in the icing and omitted salt there.  It makes a dozen cupcakes, which is great, and I had everything in my cupboard to make them (except the raspberry jam). Easy peasy!

Off to the land of normalcy………..well, not normalcy- rather, reality!


P.S.- Guess what I’m going to do this milestone year??? When it comes back to Richmond in 2010………

    Happy (belated) birthday, and I’m glad to see you won something from Sew, Mama, Sew _this_ week.

    I would like to follow your blog, but I can’t find a follow or RSS feed link anywhere on it. Perhaps I’m blind? I also can’t figure out how to add it as a feed to my google homepage. :S

  2. Hi Megan! You inspired me to figure out how to start a feed, and voila!! I made one! The feed link is at the bottom of the sidebar- thank you for asking!
